Body Bliss Intentional Aromatherapy has announced that the company is the winner of the Small Business Makeover, a program powered by the Yavapai College Small Business Development Center (SBDC). Body Bliss was founded in 1999, and Pam Sculthorp purchased Body Bliss in 2016 while Jennifer Rivera became co-owner in 2020. They employ 14 team members at the manufacturing facility in Cottonwood and six team members at the retail location in Sedona, AZ. “Body Bliss was one of two winners out of 27 applicants to win the Makeover of a Lifetime Award," says Ruth Ellen Elinski, business analyst with the SBDC. "We chose Body Bliss as a winner because it is an incredibly dynamic, women-owned business that includes both a wholesale and retail manufacturing component. We noted the impact the global pandemic has had specifically on Body Bliss’s sales channels, and the opportunity this unveils to work with you through recovery. We were particularly impressed with the commitment you demonstrated to being strategic and open to growth.”
The Small Business Makeover program is funded in part with CARES Act funding and supports businesses in Yavapai County, specifically those impacted by the global pandemic, to provide support and access to resources in this time of economic recovery. They recognizes and rewards the hard work and dedication that small business owners put into their businesses and offers a catalyst for growth and continued success.
